Topological analysis of the lysine-specific permease of Escherichia coli.


Escherichia coli accumulates lysine via two systems, one specific for lysine (LysP) and a second inhibited by arginine or ornithine (LAO). The lysP gene encodes a polypeptide of 489 residues. A topological analysis of the LysP protein was performed using gene fusions. Random in-frame fusions of the lysP gene with the lacZ or blaM genes were generated. Site… (More)
